Compagnie des Batobus operates five trimaran sightseeing boats, with eight stops along a circular route that covers both the left and right banks of the Seine:

Left Bank: Tour Eiffel, Musée d'Orsay, Saint-Germain-des-Pres, Nôtre-Dame, Jardin des Plantes.

Right Bank: Hôtel de Ville, Louvre, Champs-Elysées.

From these stops, you can easily reach the leading sights in central Paris. You can hop on and off the boats as often as you like.

Fares: The last time we checked in spring, 2015, adult fares ranged from €16 (one-day pass) to €18 (two days), with lower rates for children. Substantial discounts are available to holders of student, RATP, or SNCF cards. If you decide to settle in for a long stay, you can buy an annual pass.

You can also buy a two-day "Paris a la Carte" Pass that gives access to the Batobus and its 8 stops plus OpenTour Buses and their 50 stops.

Where to buy passes: Online, at any Batobus stop, at the Paris Tourist Office, and at other authorized locations.

When the boats run: Every 20 to 25 minutes year-round. See the Batobus "Dates and Timetables" page for seasonal hours of operation.
